Verbs and pronouns are essential components of grammar. Understanding how and when to use verbs and pronouns is essential for writing and communication skills. Children should be taught this from a young age.
Let’s understand what are verbs and pronouns
Verbs are action words, such as ‘to walk.’
A verb is a word that conveys an action, an occurrence, or a state of being in. The infinitive, with or without the particle to, is the basic form in the usual description of English. Verbs are inflected in many languages to encode tense, aspect, mood, and voice.
Pronouns are used to replace nouns (I, she, or we) or phrases. Different pronouns serve different purposes, and some pronouns never change. He, she, him, her, it, we, and us are among them. Then there are pronouns such as ‘my’ or ‘one’. These pronouns change depending on the situation, as well as when they are used in different parts of speech.
How to use verbs in a sentence:
Verbs, as the core of sentences and clauses, show what the subject is doing or feeling, even if they are simply existing. Verbs are also the only type of word that is required to complete a sentence. Even nouns, which represent things, do not have to appear in every sentence.
- Alex is throwing the football.
Throwing is the verb in this sentence as it is showing what Alex is doing
- She accepted the invitation.
Accepted is the verb in this sentence.
- The dog ran all around the garden.
Ran is the verb in this sentence
- I’ll play this song on my piano.
Play is the verb in this sentence
- They bought a new car.
Bought is the verb in this sentence
These are a few examples of verbs in a sentence.
How to use pronouns in a sentence:
In an English sentence, a pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.
It can appear in a sentence where a noun already exists or to prevent the noun from being repeated in the sentence.
- He is planning to hide behind the wall.
‘He’ is the pronoun in this sentence as it is used in the place of a proper noun.
2. She asked me to complete the work.
‘She’ is the pronoun in this sentence
3. She has many coins in her pocket
‘She’ and ‘her’ are the pronouns in this sentence.
4. They are good at playing cricket.
‘They’ are the pronouns in this sentence
These are a few examples of pronouns in a sentence.
